Forgot to post this lesson from last spring- found the photos as I was deleting old images from my camera. 1st graders learned about painter Georges Seurat through a short cartoon. I happen to travel to the Chicago Art Institute while doing this lesson so I was able to photograph some of his paintings while there to show my classes as well. They learned how to paint in the pointillism style. To achieve this, I had them use cotton swabs and the back ends of various size paint brushes. It took awhile, but was a nice end of the year lesson.
